it's grown too vast and intertwined for individual committees to investigate separately. >> thank you. president obama is putting together his cabinet for a second term, including a new cia director. so far, hillary clinton has confirmed she's going to leave. as bill plante reports, republicans already are objecting to her potential replacement. bill, good morning. >> reporter: good morning, norah. that's exactly right. cbs news has learned that the president is likely to nominate susan rice, the u.s. ambassador to the united nations, to replace hillary clinton as secretary of state. white house sources say the president feels that he should be able to choose the cabinet members he wants, and they say that rice has done a good job on iran and north korea. but rice was the public face of the administration's initial response to the attacks in benghazi, libya, saying that they were prompted by spontaneous protests, not terrorism, and she's come under fire from republicans. when asked about the possibility of rice as secretary of state, senator lindsey graham had this to say on "face the
of the employment rolls. serious stuff. lori: thanks for talking to us. always appreciated. etna's ceo is one of those executives meeting with president obama tomorrow but today he is sounding off on what the fiscal cliff means tt business. melissa: make money despite the market's penetrating sideways. charles payne joins us next. let's look at the trade on metals as we head to break. not too nervous by hiding out in the backyard or stuffing it in the mattress or what have you down $3 or $4 and that would be uncomfortable. 4g lte is the fastest. so, which supeast 4g lte service would yochoose, based on this chart ? don't rush into it, i'm not looking for the fastest answer. obviously verizon. okay, i have a different chart. going that way, does that make a differenc? look at verizon. it's so much more than the other ones. so what if we just changed the format altogether ? isn't that the exact same thing ? it's pretty clear. still sticking with verizon. verizon. more 4g lte coverage than all oer networks combined. melissa: time to make money with charles payne, technology stock. charles: i tel
investigation? flawed investigation or not, would this not be something that barack obama would want to know as fast as possible. >> thank you both for now. i'll turn now to somebody who will know probably a few answers to these questions. attorney general eric holder is also caught in the cross-fire on this scandal, facing questions about what he knew and why he didn't inform the president and congress sooner. michael mukazy was a former attorney general and joins me now. welcome. >> good to see you again. before we go down this road i want to observe the day by thanking the people in the military, veterans and their families. >> very much so. >> who served this country and make discussions like this and debates like we have been having the last couple weeks possible. >> i totally endorse that. but what do you make of this scandal? because it seems to get more ridiculous in some ways and yet possibly more serious the more we hear about it. >> well, it has as you've pointed out elements of absurdity to it, elements that as we talked about before would be rejected if they were proffered as pa
today. gender, lgbt, poverty. it is my hope that will be among the lasting legacies of an obama presidency. >> wonderful. thank you. we have about 30 minutes for questions and answers. please speak into the microphone. >> thank you for speaking. my question is about crossing the aisle. i know we want our politicians to be doing that and i want to hear your thoughts on how we do that ourselves. this campaign, i am young so i do not know how it has been in the past, but it has been frustrating not being able to connect with republicans and conservatives, especially family members. i feel like if we want our politicians to do it, we have to know how to do it ourselves. key to that is sympathy and respect. i have a hard time being empathetic towards people who are homophobic and sexist, etc. i am wondering your thoughts on that and how we did that on an individual level if we hope for that to happen on the national level. >> that's a good question. >> it is risky. just have to take the risk to have personal conversations. for me, i believe that stepping out and talking to people who
. but politically, they believe they're insulated here, because petraeus isn't considered an obama guy. if anything, he's more of a republican guy at the end of the day. >> thank you both. to chuck's point, this as a distraction overshadowing what would otherwise be the big story in washington right now. congress returning to town, getting back to work to the business of pulling back from the so-called fiscal cliff. kelly o'donnell covers the hill for us. she's there tonight. kelly, good evening. >> reporter: good evening, brian. already a full plate for congress. this petraeus controversy has grabbed attention, with members of both parties dismissed and frustrated especially about the investigation that left them in the dark. today the acting cia director was here to talk in private with key leaders. many lawmakers say petraeus owes them answers about what happened in the attack on the u.s. consulate in benghazi despite his resignation. he was set to testify this week and was replaced after the scandal broke. many lawmakers don't want to let him off the hook. this is all happening as newly elected
. thank you for taking my call. they are saying president obama did not know. but eric cantor knew ahead of time and he didn't tell anybody. maybe the president did not know about this. shouldn't eric cantor have told congress about this? guest: i do not know how much he was told. a national security issue involving petraeus and no more details. he went back to the fbi about it. it is not necessarily his job to investigate allegations like that. usa" writes's work -- guest: it is important for any cover-up to be exposed. there was a potential for compromise and that is something that should be brought out. in the old days, before there was oversight, there were all kinds of terrible abuses going on. the press did not reveal these things. the fbi under j. edgar hoover was blackmailing members of .ongress, illegal wiretapping the cia was giving lsd to some other employees. the cia was doing foolish things to try to get castro's beard to fall off. you end up filing the law and people's constitutional rights but you also lose focus. that is what we saw in many cases. when the congress start
intelligence told him he should. >> and president obama held that for 24 hours, as well. okay. thanks martha. >>> let's go to our senior justice correspondent, pierre thomas, who has more on the growing questions about how the fbi has handled the story. >> reporter: good morning, george. the more you dig into this case, the seedier it gets. apparently jill kelley, the woman at the center of the new allegations involving general allen, got the attention of a lot of men. she was a friendly acquaintance of the fbi agent who started the whole case. and it turns out, he sent her shirtless pictures of himself. now we learn this unidentified agent is under investigation for calling members of congress, breaking fbi policy about disclosing investigations. they say he's a poster boy for why such investigations need to be kept private and out of politics, george. >> and, pierre, there's some suspicion that the fbi kept this from congress and the white house to protect the president during the campaign. anything to that? >> reporter: right now, justice department officials say they have a simple story,
the affair before the election and why didn't they speak up president obama's own attorney general may be one of the people who kept the investigation a secret. ronald kessler is here. welcome. >> thank you. >> steve: the story is that the president didn't find out about it until after the. you found out about it on october 10th. >> yes, i had a call from a f.b.i. source who said the investigation is going on since the spring and yet the f.b.i. put a lid on it until after the election and after the election petraeus would b asked to resign. look at the time line, it is impossible to believe that there was not a cover up here. he should be removed immediately. i was told that it happened in the f.b.i. with a high-ranking f.b.i. he would be out of the door because of the security implications and the back well mail potential and the idea that obama would not be told until two or three days after the election it beyond belief. >> you don't believe it. you think that the president of the united states knew in the spring? >> yeah. soon as they were clear of an affair. i am sure he would be told. i

confirmation hearing on thursday is expected to move forward as planned. a critical time as president obama tries to figure out how to bring home those 68,000 remaining troops in afghanistan by the end of 2014 as scheduled. soledad? >> brianna keilar for us. thank you. so "the washington post" reporter who co-wrote paula broadwell's book about general petraeus says he was absolutely dumbfounded by the affair. he wrote an op-ed that was posted last night and he says this in part, on rare occasions, her good looks and close access would prompt a colleague to raise an eyebrow about their relationship. but i never took it seriously. he also said this, -- >> i never fully understood it but i always sort of rationalized it in my own mind as something that he felt, you know, he could control, and that because it was so public, that both of them felt there was never any danger of it becoming anything other than, you know, journalist/subject, professional relationship. >> in a few minutes we're going to be talking with congressman jason chaffetz, a member of the house oversight committee. first want
presidential administration. guess what, now he says he never said he was firing anybody if obama got elected and that the media twisted what he meant. carol? >> so strange. >> blame it on the media. aren't we easy targets? >> yeah, but we can take it. we're big girls. alison kosik, thank you. >>> another follow-up to a story we first brought you yesterday kind of about the same -- it is about the same thing. new york franchise owner of several applebee's restaurants who says he may have to issue a hiring freeze to afford the costs associated with obamacare. mike archer says, quote, recent public comments by one of applebee's franchise owners about the possible implications of the obamacare on jobs with his individual company were not the views or opinions of either applebee's or other franchisees. although we respect his right to speak freely as an american. don't rely know how obamacare will affect things. just have to wait and see. >> one general resigns. another general is the focus of questionable e-mails. will he be the next to step down? we use this board to compare car insurance rates
term for president obama and the issue of actually in his congratulations thanking him for dealing with counterterrorism policies. let's keep in mind that no president -- president hadi is actually part of the old regime. he was the vice president of president saleh and he's a military man. he's a military man with a military history and the vice president of the old regime, of the old president, and he was part of the policies that have been adopted in the past decade. so that's one. from the number of statements that hadi talking about -- -- the military units which is one of the major challenges that president hadi's facing now. and actually that will have success or failure in the interim phase that he's leading now. the former regime, the former president is still there and is part of the opposition, leading the opposition group. so one of the major challenges is reforming security units in yemen and that is that the president had the -- the u.s. help is needed. so we see that continuing policy of focusing on counterterrorism and military supports to president hadi and to the
on the growing debt. john boehner and president obama are the primary negotiators. what are both sides going to need to do to get the job done? chris van hallen joins us now. thanks for coming in. good to have you here. >> good to be with you. >> is there any reason that i or we the american people can have any optimism this is going to get done before the end of the year? there's not a lot of time left and a lot to deal with. >> yes, there is reason for optimism. there is a combustable risks. but there is opportunities here. with respect to across the board cuts, i think there's a decent chance congress could come up with an alternative way to reduce the deficit over a period of time so you don't have these slashing cuts. you'd have to replace those savings with other savings but that's doable. the tax piece is more complicated. you've heard the president make the point that he wants to immediately extend tax relief to 98% of american people. 100% of the american people would get tax relief on the first $250,000 of their income. on income above that, we should have people go back to the rat
. >> there forever. gloria, thanks very much. >>> first, this scandal is obviously a big deal for a lot of reasons. it's certainly a huge deal for the obama administration. we have new details about when and how the president was told about the allen bombshell. and the latest development, our chief white house correspondent jessica yellin is joining us now. jessica, first of all, what are you learning? >> hi, wolf. we understand that the president was first told there might be trouble with general allen and this investigation on friday, when the white house's counsel office was notified that there could be trouble with his nomination to become nato supreme allied commander. then on monday evening, the president was notified that secretary of defense leon panetta has referred to matter to the defense department's inspector general. keep in mind, now, according to the timetable, the president had also just been told on thursday about general petraeus' indiscretions, so it must have been an awful lot to take in all in one week, right after the election. secretary -- press secretary jay carney says, t
